"Be on the lookout and ready to round up your Crew for a friendly snowball fight, but be forewarned, those icy little suckers can pack a wallop."

Snowballs were a temporary weapon featured in Grand Theft Auto Online during the Festive Surprise and were once again released for the Festive Surprise 2015 edition. For the 2014 version, they were only available on 24th December, 31st December and 1st of January. For the 2015 version, they were available from December 23rd to December 26th and from December 30th and January 1st.

Description

Grand Theft Auto Online

Snowballs are throwable "items" that uses the same animations as Grenades and can therefore also be tossed underarm, and from vehicles. On some surfaces, where a snowball is thrown, it will leave a powdery texture (e.g. on vehicles).

Performance

Grand Theft Auto Online

As expected from snowballs, performance is poor. Snowballs do a minimal amount of damage, but are still lethal, as three snowballs are required to kill a pedestrian, and more than 10 must be used to kill a player with full health. Hitting the head of a pedestrian/player has a chance to knock them down for a small amount time. Like the Ball from Grand Theft Auto V, the snowball is light and can be thrown far.

Snowballs can be used to break vehicle headlights and windows, and snowballs can also hit/kill police without getting a wanted level.
